Read it.Sports author/columnist/etc. John Feinstein has had it with the incompetence of the Redskins front office and is calling for the ultimate sanction against the ownership: a boycott.
It's an interesting idea. Dan Snyder cannot be forced to sell the team and since he's a young man with no interest in selling, Redskins fans could be dealing with Snyderatto and their front office shenanigans ["Let's trade two first round picks for Brady Quinn!"] for many years to come. Decades. Think about that for a moment. More of this...for decades to come. Can you take that? You know what has been endured over the last 50 years by fans of teams like the Cleveland Indians, St. Louis/Arizona Cardinals, Cincinnati Bengals. How would you feel about becoming one of them?"Let's get to the point here," Feinstein said. "The Washington Redskins have become the Saturday Night Live routine of the NFL, all right? The owner thinks he knows football and doesn't know football. He's got a henchman sideguy to his right, who's a radio talkshow host half of the week and is calling Bingo callers to fix the offense the rest of the week. It is a joke.
"And let me say this for the record, I know what Redskins fans are saying right now. They're angry, they're upset. Ok DO something about it. DON'T go to the game Sunday. I'm serious about this. If you really want to send a message to the owner, stop calling radio talk shows, stop sending e-mails to this show, and DON'T GO on Sunday. Don't give the guy your money for parking, for concessions.
"Tell him how upset you are by staying home and watching the game on television. They ought to just stay home....DON'T GO. STAY HOME AND WATCH THE GOOD GAMES. DON'T GO!"
